The idea behind Superesse:
At Superesse the train of thought is preparedness by simplifying the method in which people keep essentials at hand. A knife, a lighter, or a flashlight are all great EDC tools to carry but oftentimes they can easily be forgotten and not on your person when needed.
Superesse paracord straps, hanks, and patches can be carried or worn daily allowing you to have what's needed to start a fire, fish, saw, purify water, cut a seatbelt in a rollover, navigate to safety, light up a path, carve a spear, or open a can of beans.
Many of Superesse’s kits are designed to be worn because if you wear a supply kit it’s more likely you won’t find yourself separated from it when needed. Alternatively, Superesse’s Everyday Carry gear is built to be multi-purpose. So by simply pocketing a hank; you not only could be keeping a sturdy tissue at-the-ready but also have a water filter device.
As part of our goal to increase preparedness, we gravely recognize that gear in and of itself does not lead to success in a Life Altering Event (emergency or SHTF). Instead knowledge is critical. This lead to the formation of the Grayman Brief, an offshoot of Superesse's intelligence wing, aimed at sharing news and situational awareness to subscribers.
Not too many years back Wesley was deployed down range. Being Airborne he found himself having plenty of Parachute Cordage. During down time he started making paracord bracelets for his team as a kind of morale booster. After returning back stateside this continued as a hobby. Being an outdoorsman and having a prepared mind, he would fill his pocket with cumbersome supplies before heading out the door for the day. Realizing that many of these items could be incorporated into the same bracelets; he began testing out various methods. Finally, coming up with a unique bracelet that had a flashlight, fishing kit, knife, firestarter, and whistle; he shared some pictures of the wearable survival kit to a Facebook Prepper's group. Within a few hours there were over a 100 comments and likes. Requests poured in from the group's members wanting to buy the strap. This is what launched the idea of turning that excitement into a business in early 2014.
The Superesse Team:
Superesse is a veteran owned and operated venture. On top of that they are a husband and wife team. Diana and Wesley handmake the hanks, paracord, and patch kits. They strife to enable others to carry useful gear and survival kits as part of their Everyday Carry. It's better to have and not need than need and not have. What really sets these products apart is that, each and every kit made, personally passes through the hands of this husband and wife team. In reality nearly everything is actually made in their home. Small Business at its finest.
Wesley served in the US Army Special Operations Command and received extensive tactical, SERE, land-nav, and unconventional warfare training. He applied this training and experience to developing EDC and Survival Gear themed for various lifestyles and adventures. He currently serves in the US Army Reserve and as a Law Enforcement Officer full time.
Diana is an avid runner having recently completed the NYC Marathon. She's a mom on the move and the muscle behind our gear. While chasing a toddler, she single handedly weaves bracelets and sews complex handkerchiefs. Her New Yorker grit and attention to detail ensure quality is at the forefront of every Superesse product.
The team is based out of North Carolina, USA near Ft. Bragg. Their venture is small but far reaching. Gear is handmade to order in small release batches. The best sign of quality is the time given to each item ordered. Putting an emphasis on God, Family, and Country; their goal is to let their work be their name.
